Mr J R Take a whole bunch of old tunes, sample the hell out of them and mix in a pot with some live musicians.
Sprinkle with Cornish sun.
Just bounce to this! Favorite track: Little Wonder.

Mubla Na Thguob So this is different. After reading the description of the album and process of creating it I gave it a full listen. Turns out it's much more than it seems at a casual glance. This is real music written by a talented artist. This is going to go nicely with my travels this summer for sure. Favorite track: Little Wonder.

Encouraged by reactions to early releases, remixes and plays on BBC Radio, Penzance producer Daytoner spent 3 years recording tracks for 'Sunburst Radio' the debut LP on Wass Records, the label of northern funk & soul supremo, Smoove.

The LP represents a 55 minute roof-down, retro-ride through Latin, Blues, Jazz, Swing and Motown rhythms, underpinned by dance floor break beats, linked by valve-age voices. But it’s not just an assembly of samples for DJ’s, as there’s a soft-centre of laid back tracks and original songs written for talented friends who’ve made key contributions on vocals, bass, slide guitar, sax & percussion to fit Daytoner’s beats and vintage keys.

Daytoner’s forged old sounds from good friends, drawing on influences dug from charity shop vinyl & antique archives...


"So good to finally see him release something in his own right...get on this" (Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show - BBC6 Music)

"Our man conjures a combination of late forties/ early fifties atmosphere for music that never existed back then lending his breakbeat rhythms a classy retro sheen. It’s like a Bakelite smartphone or f**k-off great gramophone trumpet speakers for your iPod dock or something."
(Monkeyboxing.com 29th Aug 2012)

"Daytoner is a mysterious producer who resides in the far west of England and is obsessed with perfecting his vision of 60s-tinged sunshine music from his studio shed. This album features 15 tracks of warm, familiar, feel-good tunes, the highlights of which include the euphoric R&B-soul of "Little Soul", the retro bossa nova of "Benz Bargin Bin Bossa", the gentle "From The Root To The Fruit", the Motown-esque "Treat Me" and "Tell The World" which quite frankly sounds like the theme to retro TV show, Taxi!" (Juno Download August 2012)

'Sunburst Radio' is also available to buy as a download in all major stores including iTunes, Amazon, Juno, Beatport etc alongside limited edition CD & vinyl releases in September.
